Cyclists Saddle Up for Challenging Devon Bike Ride in Loving Memory
TR Fastenings supports intrepid team in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support
A team of seven adventurous cyclists are taking on the 150 mile Devon Coast to Coast challenge from 6th to 9th May 2015 to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, sponsored by Uckfield based TR Fastenings Ltd.
The fundraising idea was led by Martin Broom of TR Fastenings and supported by his brother Ian (pictured left), a seasoned fundraiser and cycling enthusiast, to raise around £10,000 in memory of their father who lost his life to Cancer.
The seven man team will be led by Ian Broom, Managing Director of BDC International accompanied by two friends and four senior executives from a London based insurance brokers. The event will also double up as a team building exercise with assistance from a four man support crew who will provide first aid, spare cycles, water and transportation of luggage. TR fastenings will be one of four sponsors and is proud to be supporting this worthwhile event.
Martin Broom of TR Fastenings comments: “Following the loss of our father to Cancer, my brother Ian decided to put a dedicated team together to cycle the steep and undulating roads of Devon, starting at Woolacombe and finishing in Dartmouth. Although it’s 150 miles, it will seem like 500 miles! We are so grateful for TR’s generous sponsorship. We are aiming to raise £5000 but we are hopeful in reaching up to £10,000 with the level of interest we have already received.”
UPDATE: Team Smash Target in Cycling Challenge
TR Fastenings would like to offer its warmest congratulations to the cyclists who have raised a grand total of £11,500 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Team captain Ian Broom comments: “I am very happy that we smashed our first and second targets of £5k and £10k! And we would like to thank TR Fastenings and our other main sponsors, Nationwide Building Society and Old Mutual Wealth, for all their support”.
